Today we become Innovators.

What’s special about us?

At Franklin STEAM Academy, we instill the excitement of learning in our middleschool students. Through our project-based curriculum, they satisfy curiosity, construct knowledge, take responsibility, and gain independence that prepares them for adulthood.

Where technology-rich learning integrates core subjects, and where today’s imagination and grit solve real-world issues tomorrow.
